Re: Am I the only one...

Reminds me of the beginning of "Soul of a New Machine", where Tom West went into a Data Center where a new DEC was being installed, opened it up, counted the number of boards, approximated the parts, and the resulting cost and cost/complexity of manufacturing it. DG's goal was a one-board CPU.....

From "Soul of a New Machine" to "sold off a new machine" (sort-of). Sad.

RIP, HP labs and the HP Way.
